Facade Mockup 17
Designer: Pei Partnership Architects
Lighting Designer: Lightswitch Architectural
Commissioned by Pei Partnership Architects, Facade Mockup 17 is an exterior facade study designed by Pei Partnership Architects in conjunction with the lighting designers of Lightswitch Architectural. The half-scale mock-up is roughly 18' high by 24' long ans is composed of mitre-folded ACM panels with programmable LED set behind 3form acrylic light diffusers. During daylight hours the geometric panels, set at various depths, cast striking, crisp shadows, while at night the LEDs produce a rippling play of light on the face of the future theatre.
